THE BEGINNING OF THE FAMILY OF THE BELL
The stars are dim
They’re almost done
Call your friends
It’s time they come
And when they come they’ll bring the Sun?
When they come they’ll bring the Sun
We think they heard you play your song
We like your song replay your song
We think they heard you play your song
We like your song replay your song
Here come my friends
School now begins
When your friends arrive
Bring them all inside
Activate the Sun

And they’ll see what you have done
For now prepare your lessons
Rejoice in the reception
Everything will tell
And the Family of the Bell
Put away your sun your friends have come!
Put away your sun your friends have come!
Put away your sun your friends have come!
Put away your sun your friends have come!

ONCE WE WERE EIGHT, NOW WE’RE THREE
Once we were eight now we’re three
Once we were eight now were three
Once we were eight now we’re three
Begot the only one save for me
Once we were eight now we’re three
Once we were eight now we’re three
Once we were eight and now we’re three

Begot the only one save for me
Exploding from the earth and from the sea
Begot the only one save for me
The journey is of now come and see
We once were eight but now we’re only three
The Family of the Bell says to stay
They sent us here and told us how to play
They’ll be here very soon you must wait
The Ocean swallows Moon in the day
Once we were eight now we’re three
Once we were eight now we’re three
Once we were eight now we’re three
Begot the only one save for me
Once we were eight now we’re three
Once we were eight now we’re three
Once we were eight now we’re three
Begot the only one save for me
Exploding from the earth and from the sea
Begot the only one save for me
The journey is of now so come and see
We once were eight but now we’re only three

NOW WE SEE
All across the ocean we will sing

For thing that they bring
All across the ocean we will sing
For everything that they bring
All across the ocean we will sing
For everything that they bring
All across the ocean we will sing
Eyes like a prize
They come from inside
Eyes like a prize
They come from inside
They’ll guide to the rite
To make the triad
Here we go it’s slow
Eyes in the snow
Now we see the Sun is on the rise
We must go and see what this is like!
Now we see the Sun is on the rise
We must go and see what this is like!
Now we see the Sun is on the rise
We must go and see what this is like!
Now we see the Sun is on the rise
We must go and see what this is like!
